Location: Concord, California
← 2018 2020 →

An annual convention of the Libertarian Party of California was held 5-7 April 2019 at the Crowne Plaza in Concord, California.

At this convention, the Bylaws and Convention Rules were amended, and elections were held for various positions on the state Executive Committee. Four officers and three Area Coordinators were elected for two-year terms. In addition four at-large members were elected for two-year terms and one for a one-year term, along with two alternates. The convention also voted to delete all planks of the existing platform (an action subsequently overturned by the LPC Judicial Committee).


For all of the officer positions except Chair, and all of the area coordinator positions, there was only one candidate. Following are the votes reported in the elections in which there was more than one candidate.

Platform Controversy

The Platform Committee had recommended deletion of the entire extant platform and replacing it with the national platform. The platform was deleted, but the attempt to adopt the national platform was unsuccessful leaving the LPCA with no platform. Several members appealed the deletion of the Platform to the LPCA Judicial Committee alleging fatal violations of member voting rights during the process of the applicable votes. The Judicial Committee overturned the platform deletion on June 10, 2019, see California Judicial Committee May 2019 Appeal of Convention Action Regarding Platform.
